John Travolta is one of the most enduring and lovable superstars, and you'll enjoy each and every one of these best John Travolta dance movies. The career of John Travolta has spanned four decades, and he is still going strong. One of the things that fans always hope for in each John Travolta film is a great dance scene, and these movies offer plentiful dance moves from perhaps the most famous movie actor/dancer.
- "Grease" "Grease" is the word for hearing John Travolta sing and seeing him dance. It's a classic musical, and it co-stars the great Olivia Newton-John. In the movie, John Travolta's character, Danny Zuko, even has a dance-off. Perhaps the best scene of the film is the "You're the One That I Want" song and dance segment, where Sandy and Danny admit and show their love. It's a great romantic musical for all ages.
- "Pulp Fiction" "Pulp Fiction" was considered John Travolta's comeback move in 1994. As any true Travolta fan knows, though, he never went away. He'd been making great movies since his film debut in "Carrie." John plays Vincent Vega in this Quentin Tarantino modern classic, and the dance scene at Jack Rabbit Slim's is among the most memorable of the movie.
- "Saturday Night Fever" "Saturday Night Fever" won John Travolta his first Oscar nomination. It also showed the world how great of a dancer and actor he truly was. There are many disco dance scenes from this movie, and the dance moves are instantly recognizable as Travolta's to this day. The story of young people struggling to find their way is timeless, and the movie is just as relevant today as it was in the late 1970s.
- "Urban Cowboy" "Urban Cowboy" allowed John Travolta to show off a whole different set of dance moves. As a country boy in this romance movie (one that is a bit cringe-worthy today in how Travolta's character treats the woman he loves), John Travolta's dancing is the best part of the film. It's definitely worth watching, and it's especially popular as a classic in the South.
- "Staying Alive" "Staying Alive" was the 1983 sequel to "Saturday Night Fever." John Travolta went on a special weight training program and diet to get his body ready for this intense dance movie, where he shows off his sculpted body and dance moves more than ever before. The dance scenes are plentiful, and watch for a cameo from director Sylvester Stallone, whose brother provided the soundtrack single "Far from Over."
